    Loft FOR by adn Architectures // Brussels, Belgium.

    15th April

    Ahhh goodness. Are these images real or is this some artist’s impression of a place where gravity doesn’t exist? The slickness of the folded steel stair is verging on implausible. That thin and that crisp? Really? Alas, you’ll be pleased to know that this loft is real, it’s just been subject to the wizardry of adn Architectures in Brussels.



    Givenchy Store in Paris by Joseph Dirand.

    2nd April

    Givenchy’s latest flagship store was always destined for awesome. With a much sought after location in Paris, and Joseph Dirand as the collaborator, the label’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci, was making all the right calls from the get go.



    Lighting Layers & Reflections by Autumn de Wilde.

    11th March

    American photographer, Autumn de Wilde has designed a pair of transparent and reflective jewel toned structures for a photo-shoot in the dry Californian landscape. Made of a combination of mirror and coloured plexiglass, images of the landscape are reflected on the structure, and the landscape is simultaneously cast with rose, warm gold and aqua tinted sunlight. The reciprocal exchange of colour, light and refraction are truly exquisite.



    Tapestry Museum by CVDB Arquitectos // Arraiolos, Portugal.

    25th February

    CVDB Arquitectos have converted an old hospital in the tiny town of Arraiolos in Portugal, into a Tapestry Museum. The town is famed for the embroidered rugs and carpets it produces, so for the 3300 inhabitants that live there, the museum celebrates the local cultural identity. The exterior skin of the building remains largely intact, flowing seamlessly with the character of the surrounding streetscape. The only new external addition is the delicately crafted stair shaft, which hides quietly at the back of the site.



    Scanlan Theodore Stores by Meacham Nockles McQualter.

    11th February

    Scanlan Theodore’s newest stores – in Sydney’s Paddington and The Strand Arcade, and Melbourne’s Armadale – have been designed by Sydney based practice, Meacham Nockles McQualter. Like the iconic Australian fashion label, the architects approached these retail fit-outs with the same commitment to simple, modern classic design, centring around beautiful materials and attentive craftsmanship.



    San Francisco Loft by LINEOFFICE Architecture.

    28th January

    This converted warehouse space was remodelled by San Francisco based practice LINEOFFICE Architecture. The weightiness of the post and beam structure and the tactile grain of the Douglas Fir were at once seductive for both the client and architect. With such an exquisitely crafted timber structure, the architects were keen to honour the original bones of the space.
